25 More Colleges Move to Better Communicate Value and Affordability Using Student Aid Services’ Solutions

SACRAMENTO, CA | Momentum continues to build as 25 more colleges have chosen Student Aid Services, Inc.’s Enrollment Enhancement™ Solutions to help them communicate value and affordability to prospective students and improve enrollment yield.

“Our communications provide reliable insights about a student’s financial aid and personal affordability, which greatly influence a student’s college choice,” said Matthew Summer, Student Aid Services’ Vice President of Business Development. “We seamlessly integrate our communications with a college’s enrollment campaign for consistent messaging and appearance.”

Thirteen more colleges have switched to SAS’s next-generation aid-award letter format. This new approach enables a college to personalize its financial aid award communication with value and affordability messaging to help prospective students understand the return on their education investment. These booklets are dynamically generated in full color. The new colleges contracted to use SAS’s value and affordability aid-award letters are Abilene Christian University, the College of Idaho, Florida Institute of Technology, Marshall University, Michigan State University, Pepperdine University, Regis University, Robert Morris University, Rutgers University, St. John Fisher College, Samford University, the University of Delaware, and Warren Wilson College.

“After being accepted, prospective students continue to compare their college options as aid awards are offered,” Summer said. “With most students still in ‘shopping’ mode, many colleges realize the importance of this last opportunity to communicate how their education’s lifelong value eclipses the short-term costs.”


In addition, 17 more colleges are posting SAS’s custom net price calculators on their websites to help potential first-year students reliably plan how to pay for their education: Andrews University, Bellevue University, the College of Idaho, Hiwassee College, Lenoir-Rhyne University, McMurry University, Metropolitan Community College, Montclair State University, Northwest Missouri State University, Pepperdine University, Point University, St. John Fisher College, Samford University, University of Indianapolis, Warren Wilson College, and Xenon International Academy. In addition, Stetson University will post SAS’s custom merit calculator on its website.
